Howell Farm is currently closed to visitors, but the spring work continues! Below you’ll find photo and video updates on corn planting, sheep shearing, and other projects happening around the farm.
We look forward to reopening as soon as possible, but in the meantime please remember that hiking, biking, and horseback riding through the farm—including on Hunter Road—are prohibited.
For the latest information on current park access and future reopenings, please visit mercercountyparks.org. Thanks for checking in – we hope to invite you back soon!
Take to the field with the Bulls or the Hogs and play ball! Howell Farm’s two teams play by 19th-century Town Ball rules, and invite visitors of all ages to step up to the plate as “Striker” and face off against the “Thrower.” But be careful of the Referee, who sits in a chair on the field and charges fines of up to 5 cents for breaking the rules!
